The bristles and shape of the brush are great. And, I do like the grippy handle with the extra piece tucked in the end. When styling my hair, it did make it smooth and shiny.
However, my hair gets EATEN UP where the brush meets the handle, causing it to break. I've got short clumps in my hair now, from it getting caught in the small gap in the brush. I'll be replacing it immediately.
This a great styling brush my hair is curly and it goes thru it nicely. I would buy the bigger sizes next time for my sisters hair bcuz its longer
I needed a new round brush and had some points to use from birchbox. This brush was so much better than I expected. I have frizzy/wavy hair. It's not straight but not curly. When I try to blow dry my hair as straight as possible I still go back over it with a flat iron and have fly-aways. This did not happen with this brush. My hair was smooth, straight, had good volume, and was very shiny without adding extra products. I don't find the heat indicator helpfull. I can't see the bands once my hair is wrapped around the brush.
